Kockums Performs General Overhaul of Swedish Navy Support Vessel


Kockums performs a general overhaul of HMS Trossö

HMS Trossö is a support vessel of the Swedish Navy and the general overhaul is the largest overhaul performed on a marine vessel. It means that Kockums will review the whole ship and replace worn parts – from single screws to electrical systems. The overhaul also includes a few minor modifications.

The overhaul begins in April 2011 and will be ready by the end of August the same year.
